Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

The SF/HS style of kb work leaves a lot of grip endurance on the table.

If there is a real 'functional strength' it has to do with the strength, endurance and resilience of the hands. Long set styles of lifting build a ferocious grip endurance.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

The book isn't out yet. Supposedly, the S&S program will be updated, wtv that means. Where is Shaf and his insider's knowledge when we need him?? I haven't been an insider for a decade or so. It is kind of funny, at one point the online fitness industry was small enough that I could keep tabs on ev...

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

Is there a shittier, more worthless exercise than the bent press?

There's a reason nobody but strongman recreationists do that kind of shit.

Re: High Weirdness in the Himalayas

There is another axis on that graph I can't really describe it more that 'putting your eggs in few baskets'. In third world countries? Kids and babies die. Kids and babies have died in huge percentages up until the 'modern age of medicine'. So in Niger, you, as a woman, might have 8 kids, with 2 rea...

Re: H-town flood

Yeah. No worries.

Other folks aren't as lucking. Imelda caught everyone off guard as it'd moved north and east a bit, then some bands of rain came around and just dumped a bunch of water.

Not as bad as Harvey, and a lot drained quickly but still quite a bit of floodign.

Re: NOT Born That Way

The happiest societies are those without sexual hang ups.

The most miserable are those who have them. And they are distinctly interested in fucking up the happy societies vibe.

See Pacific Islanders and Missionaries for a great example of this.

sigfrith777 or something like that.

Glenn was a lifter's lifter and coach, and I too will miss him. His stroke diminished him somewhat, but he recovered. But the whole thing with Muscle Driver USA was weird, here he was, Pendlay bars, Pendlay bumpers, Pendlay DoWin shoes, then nothing.

It boils down to "might makes right". Populations moved in, fucked up the local populations, and took over. This is SOP during homo sapiens history. As far as other hominids?

Re: Random Things I've Been Adding

Ive done tibialis work since I got "Maximum Calves" by Health for Life in the early 90s. In fact, tibialis work itself contributed significantly to bulletproofing my ankles when I played rugby. Most of what I've done is a reverse calf raise or single leg reverse calf raise off a step, but you can le...

Re: Pavel Tsatsouline is a Fraud by Steve Cotter

It is a good point that he was vetted by the US Gov. But that basically means he is a legitimate immigrant, that he probably has a degree in some sort of physical training (ballet is a legit art) and that he's got no ties to sketchy shit overseas. It almost certainly means he wasn't IN spetznaz or a...

Heh, funny this was revisited.

Someone, a while ago claimed Pavel's education was in ballet, which was why his first books were about stretching and abs.

Re: Secular Trends in Obesity (i.e. Why We're Fatter)

Guyanet went over this with regards to his hyperpalatable foods theory. Today's junk foods have been scientifically honed to cause over-eating and craving. Despite what the study says, you can see that kids, in particular, have far less physical activity than they did in the past. Fat kid + fat adul...

Are you ok, Benny? Or are you swinging manic at this point? I met Taubes and asked him about his foundation's study's results and he explained the researcher was an asshole.
